The old Tagola

Bookwormed! Out of the blue by Jill

Here are the rules:

1. Open the closest book - not a favorite or most intellectual book, but the closest at the moment - to page 56.

2. Write out the fifth sentence on the page, as well as the two to five sentences following.

3. Then open your ms to page 56 and write out the fifth sentence, as well as two to five additional ones.

4. Tag five (or more) buddies to do this same exercise.

Well, here goes nothing:

1. Animorphs by K.A. Applegate. (I feel the need to say that I am at my inlaws house and they have lots of books for grandkids.)

"No. I don't think it works that way. You have to think at me to hear. Hey, watch this." Suddenly Tobias leapt through the air.

Well, it doesn't make much sense to me, since I haven't read the book. *shrug*

2.My WiP

"You should go back to sleep," Owen said. "You need your rest."
"For what?" Jetta's chest felt tight. She could feel the pressure rising to her throat. "I don't do anything."
"Bored?" Kris asked, contemptuously.
"N--no, that's not what I meant."
"Well, than what did you mean?"

3. Come on, it's fun! I tag:

Fun! I accept your tag.

I just typed in your blog address (usually I click on a link) and accidentally put midnightmedications, and then I remembered, oh yeah, I need to go take my pills. haha.

Can I just say how intrigued I am and how much I can't wait to read PAMR?

Kasie West said...

Okay, I accept. This is good, because I was trying to think of a post for tomorrow.

btw, your book sounds good. I have an Owen in my wip too. :)

And Animorphs! I have one of those in my classroom, but no one every picks it up. Wonder why. :D

Love the excerpt. I'm also intrigued.

Fun game going on here. It's interesting reading random passages just lifted out of the stories like that.

Natalie said...

AH! I can't tell you how happy I am to see Jetta talking to Owen on page 56! Woot!

Renee Collins said...

Candice-Good, I'll look forward to it. :) And, sometimes this blog does feel like midnight medications, so there you go.

Kiersten-Aw, thanks. :)

Kasie-I like the name Owen, though I am still feeling that perhaps his name is something else.

Jill-You know, one of these days I want to read an Animorphs, just for fun. I guess now could be the time, seeing as how I have a copy. Thanks for the fun tag. :)

Joanne-It is fun, I could tag you if you like. :)

Natalie- oh, just you wait. There is drama in store.
